We run an official for-credit internship program for our undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students.
How to apply
Follow these steps to apply for a science internship. The process is slightly different depending on whether the placement is advertised or you find it yourself.
1. Express your interest
Submit an Expression of Interest form to confirm your eligibility for the course. To be eligible you must have a Distinction average in your program and have completed a minimum of 72 units by the time of placement. Postgraduate applicants are required to have completed 24 units and have approval from the Program Convener and the Supervisor. For Summer/Semester 1, 2021 advertised projects, EOI's are due by 5pm, 23 Oct 2020.
2. Complete your application
After you receive confirmation of your eligibility from the Science Internships Office, complete your application by sending your CV, one-page Statement of Interest and Suitability and/or other requirements listed on the internship project description to firstname.lastname@example.org. For Summer/Semester 1, 2021 advertised projects, these documents are due by 5pm, 4 Nov 2020.
For advertised internships, applications will be forwarded to the host organisation for consideration.
For self-sourced internships, we must confirm the suitability of the project. You will not be eligible for enrolment for a self-sourced internship until you have received formal approval from the Internship Convener.
3. Attend the interview
For advertised internships: you may be asked to attend an interview, and we will notify you if you are successful.
For self-sourced internships: we will inform you if your project is approved.
If you are successful or approved for an intership, we will send you the Internship Schedule, Student Deed Poll, Student Insurance Approval and Application for Enrolment Change forms for completion. Final approval is conditional on you finding an ANU supervisor.
4. Complete documentation
Complete the following forms:
- Internship Schedule
- Student Deed Poll
- Student Insurance Approval form
- Application for Enrolment Change form
Scan and email them to email@example.com. You must receive signed approval from both ANU and the host organisation supervisors before you can enrol in the internship course and commence your internship.
Once all signatures and approvals have been received, Science Central will enrol you in the internship course. After enrolment, you may then proceed to commence the internship as outlined in the Internship Schedule. You must attend any Internship Induction courses as advised by ANU or the host organisation.
